Landfall, MN, 02/2016 - Current

I am retiring from being a Registered Nurse after 40 years in the field. My first love has always been working with pets. I began my college career in pre-veterinary medicine and regret that I ever changed to nursing because I feel my calling is in caring for animals and their pet parents. My nursing career has been wonderful and I have loved being able to provide comfort and care to people during their most challenging times, however, I have always known that my heart is with animals. I truly want the chance to provide love and care to beloved pets while their owners are away. I understand that this section of the resume is asking me to provide information about my duties as a RN which I will do to show how many of the tasks are able to transfer to caring for animals and giving their pet parents information and a sense of security when they leave their pets in the care of PetsMart employees in the PetsHotel.
